Medicine is not an exact science, and a limited number of people who go to hospital ever stop to think about the diagnostic process can be. Dr. Henry Wanyonyi of Nairobi hospital says that since medicine is not like physics, the success of a treatment often relies on how best a patient articulates their symptom.
“Even after the patient explains their symptoms in as much detail as possible, diagnosis involves a series of elimination to get to the root of the problem. It is very much like troubleshooting a car or machine,” adds Mr. Wanyonyi.
It is in light of these medical challenges that LG Electronics has committed to manufacturing medical monitors that aid the doctor in various diagnostic and surgical processes.
These advanced monitors are capable of rendering impressive brightness levels and come equipped with built-in calibrator checks to ensure constant color accuracy.
Utilizing unique hospital-specific aspect ratios, the monitors are Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) compliant, which means that grayscale tones are corrected to maintain image accuracy and consistency over time.
Moses Marji, the regional General Manager Marketing for LG Electronics is especially keen on local hospitals taking advantage the 8MP Surgical Monitor.
“The 8MP IPS display enables detailed observation of previously hard-to-see regions. Moreover, by adding a deep red color spectrum, the Surgical monitor assures color expression of the red spectrum,” he says.
With various features to stabilize and adjust the brightness to meet standard viewing requirements, the LG surgical monitor carefully measures and sets every grayscale tone to create a monitor compliant with DICOM Part 14 to ensure visual accuracy and consistency.
Furthermore, LG’s surgical monitors offer stabilized brightness settings that quickly adapt during the surgical procedure to correspond to local lighting conditions.
Medicine may not be an exact science, but the adoption of technologies based on the exact science of electronics will go a long way to enhance the overall practice and thus improve the general healthcare in the country.
